This is a great blog post. I agree we need to challenge ourselves. I think this site is full of things that will help challenge me. Its worth noting that the admins of the site are grandmasters who climbed the mountains of chess before the age of 20. Many of the members here are over 30 and still at the lower levels. Ive often wondered what it takes for older players to succeed. There once was a forum post at chess.com where people looked for someone who had become a master after learning chess after 20. They found almost no one, not a single example. It might be interesting to examine that topic in a future blog post. Again thanks for the post Gab.

Maybe the older players here should organize a study group :) I am pushing 40, and it is hard to memorize all the opening lines.

I'm starting to despair a little at how bad I am at remembering the lines

Hi! It's a good topic but how can I understand which are my weaknesses in order to know in which part of chess I must do more difficult things to improve? I am a 1600-1700 ELO player from about 5 years and I play chess every day but I don't see improvements from a long time and I'm tired of it.

Daniel, just playing will not help, if you are not working on chess correctly and you don't have a good mentor.

Thank you for a completely new concept! I am in the trap of solving already familiar puzzles that really are not helpful. Will try the puzzles and see...they do seem way above my capability.

Time for me to restart the puzzle book that was a bit over my head =)
